Massive BFZ congratulations to the amazing Alice who absolutely nailed her debut marathon in Barcelona yesterday, with a stunning time of 4 hours 4 minutes! The money Alice has raised will be a massive boost to our work, improving the lives of children in Zambia. There's still time to sponsor Alice if you haven't got around to it yet:
Thanks Alice and well done!

Josephine is a retired teacher who, as well as bringing up her own children, has cared for eight orphans in her home. She is also our volunteer teacher, running a makeshift pre-school under a Makangala tree or, during the rainy season, in her house. This International Women's Day we salute Josephine and every one of the 70 women carers who work tirelessly to make brighter futures for the children BFZ supports.

In 2014 Felix told us:
"When I was in Grade 9 my grandmother was unable to pay the school fees, so I used to work with her, making pieceworks. Sometimes I come home tired and I could not even manage to wake up and start studying. I just thank my sponsors for sponsoring me in education. Now at school I'm doing OK, I'm even improving."
And he just kept on improving! Felix has just received his grade 12 school leaver's results and has passed every subject with merit or distinction. Massive congratulations to Felix!

The lovely Alice Watson is lacing up her trainers once again in support of BFZ- this time for the big one: marathon time! She's been training hard and pushing through sore feet and freezing weather so please show her your support if you can by sponsoring her below. Good luck Alice- you're amazing!

Thanks to all BFZ's supporters who sponsor a child through their education. As well as fees, their sponsorship provides uniform, books and equipment so that last week children like Pretania returned to school last equipped with everything they need for the new school year.
